47256  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Alternative Elections / Re: Sarah Palin/Charlie Crist (R) vs. Hillary Clinton/Ted Strickland (D) on: July 22, 2009, 07:29:53 pm
1. I seriously doubt Clinton would run again
2. Palin right now seems to be finished and I think she's permanently
3. Crist rather for the top of the ticket
4. Strickland will be really old!
47257  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Two-years term on: July 22, 2009, 07:27:48 pm
Let say Republicans, who were primarily responsible for a two eight-year term limits (22nd Amendment), actually did something much more radical: an establishment of a two-year term (something now unthinkable outside of course NH and VT) for President. No person shall be eligible to serve more than three such terms (maximum 6 years, but V.P., who succeeded and served less than a year can be reelected twice).

Amendment went into effect with 1952 election. Truman now goes down with history as lat four-years President.

There are my guess:

34th: Dwight D. Eisenhower (R-PN)/Richard M. Nixon (R-CA), January 20, 1953 - January 20, 1959
35th: Richard M. Nixon (R-CA)/Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr. (R-MA), January 20, 1959 - January 20, 1961
36th: John F. Kennedy (D-MA)/Lyndon B. Johnson (D-TX), January 20, 1961 - November 22, 1963
37th: Lyndon B. Johnson (D-TX),November 22, 1963 - January 20, 1965
37th: Lyndon B. Johnson (D-TX)/Hubert H. Humphrey (D-MN), January 20, 1965 - January 20, 1967
38th: Hubert H. Humphrey (D-MN)/John B. Connally (D-TX), January 20, 1967 - January 20, 1969
39th: Richard M. Nixon (R-CA)/Spiro T. Agnew (R-MD)/Gerald Ford (R-MI), January 20, 1969 - August 6, 1974
40th: Gerald R. Ford (R-MI), August 6, 1974 - January 20, 1975
41st: Frank F. Church (D-ID)/Jerry Brown (D-CA), January 20, 1975 - January 20, 1979
42nd: Howard H. Baker (R-TN)/John M. Ashbrook (R-OH), January 20, 1979 - January 20, 1983
43rd: Walter F. Mondale (D-MN)/Lloyd Bentsen (D-TX), January 20, 1983 - January 20, 1989
44th: George H. W. Bush (R-TX)/Thomas F. Kean (R-NJ), January 20, 1989 - January 20, 1993
45th: William J. Clinton (D-AR)/Albert A. Gore, Jr. (D-TN), January 20, 1993 - January 20, 1995
46th: Robert J. Dole (R-KS)/Jack F. Kemp (R-NY), January 20, 1995 - January 20, 1997
47th: Albert A. Gore, Jr. (D-TN)/Howard B. Dean (D-VT), January 20, 1997 - January 20, 2003
48th: George W. Bush (R-TX)/Richard B. Cheney (R-WY), January 20, 2003 - January 20, 2007
49th John F. Kerry (D-MA)/D. Robert Graham (D-FL), January 20, 2007 - present

NO FREAKING WAY!

I would never want to be a part of such "free-market" system.

No matter I'd have a money for covegare or not. I couldn't stand people around me dying because they can't afford treatments. This is shameful.

Thanks for the help folks.

You're welcome Smiley

And, btw, I think in such scenario McCain would lose too, but much more narrowly
47263  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: Presidential special elections on: July 22, 2009, 04:35:13 pm
You right, because Roosevelt has been nominated for V.P. to "bury him alive", as Platt desired. He need few years to made his position.

Maybe ol' Mark Hanna would be a candidate. Ughhh...
47264  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: Presidential special elections on: July 22, 2009, 04:14:26 pm
I agree on Blaine (which means Arthur is President just for few months).

I not so sure about Teddy Roosevelt, succeeding and the denied nomination.

Anyway, this is my expanded guess, that constitution provided special election since very begining:

1841 special election: Henry Clay (W-KY) (already groomed as Harrison successor, should not have a troble by denying nomination to now President Tyler, who never was considered for this role in first place)

1850: Incumbent Fillmore. He became vunerable only after singing Runaway Slaves Law

1865: Hm, the hard one. Don't think Johnson, who in the case would be just a placeholder. Maybe Fremont, Chase even ressurected Hamlin? I don't think Grant would run so quicky

1881: Blaine (R-ME)

1901: Roosevelt (inc.) (R-NY)

1923: Coolidge (inc.) (R-MA)

1945: Truman (inc.) (D-MO) thanks to sympathy votes after FDR death, but agree that more narrowly

1964: Johnson (inc.) (D-TX) by one landslide (probably not very contestet race) and then regularry by antoher landslide of November as IOTL

1974: Not Ford, I won't be suprise he chose to not run. Right after Watergate Democratic victory more than assured. Kennedy, Jackson, Chruch even ressurected Humphrey.

Early election kills Carter aspiration, as he did not yet rise

Who has the power or ability to force Corzine out?

Does he even really want it anymore? The guy clearly has wanted to be in DC for the past few years anyway.

I always wondered why did he give up his safe Senate seat and moved to governor mansion
47267  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: Romney veep on: July 22, 2009, 07:14:45 am
Critst would be the best V.P. nominee, but I don't think he would accept just two years after geting elected to the Senate
47268  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: Obama vs. Cantor on: July 22, 2009, 07:09:30 am
As of Virginia. Yes, Cantor is from this state, but this doesn't mean he would be able to switch his home states. Representatives not really switches their states, it's hard to them, because they represents just their districts.

I know it much farer example, but can you imagine Bachmann delivering Minnesota, Minnick delivering Idaho or Issa delivering California?
47269  Election Archive / 2010 Elections / Re: Most vunerable on: July 22, 2009, 07:04:49 am
Not so bad. I thins Cao would be voted out eaisly in 2010 against nearly any other Democrat

And Jefferson is gone anyway.

Bidault's out, and turnout was great! Smiley

ROUND NINE is now open, vote away.

JWHart is right, time to get rid of a caretaker technician. Frédéric François-Marsal.

Apparently was PM for about a week, so he barely counts.

Two days, actually Grin June 8 to June 10.

Wikipedia says for little more days: 8 June 1924 – 15 June 1924

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frédéric_François-Marsal

I trust French Wikipedia more. I think English Wikipedia counts slightly more days since they calculate until the official formation/nomination of the next cabinet, rather than stopping at the resignation of said cabinet.

François-Marsal was a "technician", and was obviously a caretaker until the Cartel des gauches formed a government (it was right after the left's victory in 1924).

I always regret I cannot speak nor read in French Sad

47274  Forum Community / Survivor / Re: GERMAN CHANCELLORS SURVIVOR- winner: Willy BRANDT, over Adenauer ! on: July 21, 2009, 05:49:14 pm
The point that this is the Warsaw ghetto uprising, and not the Warsaw uprising, and that apparently some people in Poland found this wrong (or at least lacking in a similar gesture for the ethnic Poles) was quite missed by the German public, btw.

Yes, I know, but still I highly respect Brandt for his ghetto gesture.

After all, this was not a common gesture.
